PREPARATIONS for ScotPlant 2020 are heating up, with several new and returning exhibitors joining established names in signing up for the most important event of the year for the Scottish construction equipment sector.
Earlier this year, we revealed that for the first time in the show’s history, the long avenue between the indoor Lowland Hall and the outdoor showground will be available to hire as exhibitor space.
We can now reveal that Caterpillar dealer Finning has taken a 980 square metre plot within this area. The firm was a notable absentee at ScotPlant 2018 but has chosen to make a welcome return to the exhibition. Finning will be joined in this avenue by crushing machinery specialist McCloskey, who are relocating from an alternative area of the showground, and surveying equipment supplier Opti-cal, who will have both an indoor and outdoor presence at the event.
Discussions are progressing with a number of other interested parties.
In other ScotPlant 2020 news, MB Crusher and Kato Imer dealer Sellars will make debut appearances at the two-day event. Marubeni-Komatsu, who returned to ScotPlant in 2018 after an absence, have confirmed they will be back again, while Bobcat/Doosan will share a large stand.
Tiltrotator manufacturer Engcon has also taken a significant space, while Scot JCB has doubled the size of its stand. Hiab, which bought Scottish dealer Logan Inglis last year, has also confirmed its attendance.
ScotPlant sales manager Mark Griston said, “With less than six months to go until ScotPlant 2020, the show is really starting to take shape. It’s great to have the first exhibitors in the new avenue confirmed and it’s clear that, yet again, ScotPlant will be a must-attend event for anyone with an interest in the Scottish construction equipment sector.”
